- Walking shoe recommendation
What’s worth a look, properly out of my depth but my boots are dead (Hi-Tecs) and i’m starting to ease in to middle age so the skate shoes are out for a bit and it’s fleeces and that
Merrels seem to look alright, but i don’t want to blow a load on something that’ll eventually just be used to take the dog outPosted 3 years ago
I’ve always had good experiences with Merrels.
Berghaus have also been good.
Bit less “outdoor kit” but my addidas trainers have also been really good GTX Terrex ones.Posted 3 years ago
North Face hedgehog. We have both had several pairs. Excellent and don’t look naff with jeans.Posted 3 years ago
Meindl or Zamberlan. Worth the spend.

The best answer is a pair from a decent brand, that fits you. I’ve got on well with certain models from the Salomon range for years. I’ve a pair of Haglofs which look nicer, but sometimes give me a bit of heel rub. And my Brashers just never felt right after the first half hour. If you’re planning to do any serious walking, get to a store stocking a few brands and try some on. An ill-fitting shoe from the ‘best’ brand is probably worse then a perfect fit from the rubbish bin. How much time and cash you spend should partly be determined by how much time (and where) you’re going to be walking in them.Posted 3 years ago
Love these kind of threads. Of the brands recommended on here, i wouldn’t go near merrell, berghaus or north face for shoes. All suffer from appalling quality control and fall to pieces with proper usage imo.
So i think the answer is that you must find your way.Posted 3 years ago
Only reason I wear my proper boots these days is if it’s gonna be reet wet, otherwise I’d choose my saucony trail runners.Posted 3 years ago
Merrell Chameleon are my everyday shoes, comfy for me. Usually last a year or two. Though not waterproof.Posted 3 years ago
If its proper wet or muddy, I’ll wear wellies.

FWlittleIW, I wear these. Haglöfs Vertigo.Posted 3 years ago
I was convinced I needed a pair of Brasher boots, did all the research and they were online definitely the boots for me…Until I tried a pair on ! They just did not fit at all, luckily I was in Keswick when buying them so I was not short on choice. I ended up with a pair of Meindl boots which fit perfectly, but only found this out as the shop had a massive selection.
So my advise….go to a shop with a lot of choice, buy some that fit.Posted 3 years agoPosted 3 years ago
go a to shop with a lot of choice, buy some that fit from that shop.
Adidas Terrex. Fit (me) great and super light. Not so good in really heavy/wet conditions, but brilliant everywhere else.

My Haglöfs Vertigo shoes are the most comfortable in my boot rack. I also use a pair of Adidas Terrex but these are nowhere near as comfortable.Posted 3 years ago
61 and still wearing skate shoes AND hoodies ! ?? Talking about shoes I drive a van for work and buy walking boots but find they wear real quick with constant accelerator, brake and clutch use . Any driving shoes out there ?Posted 3 years ago
I’m just about to head out on to the moors to christen my new Meindl’s. I splashed out as they were in the sale and so were reduced from hideously expensive to just really expensive. I’m banking on them lasting for years though. They better bloody had!!
They replace a set of Keens, which put in some valiant service. I’d had Merrells in the past, and always liked them, but the last pair I had fell apart in 5 minutes. I’d never buy another pair!Posted 3 years ago
Merrell are the crank bros of the walking world, they look great……Posted 3 years ago
Salomon approach shoes for any UK summer walking.
Fell running in the winterPosted 3 years ago
Meindl for the win. I got mine for £50 in the Millets sale. Should have been £180!!! Been wearing them for a year and they still look new.Posted 3 years ago
